1. Consider the condition of your used VDOT barriers.

The condition of your used VDOT barriers will have the largest impact on the listing price. To determine the overall condition of your barriers, consider factors such as age, visual signs of wear, and any damage the barriers may have sustained while in use. Buyers are willing to pay more for barriers that exhibit minimal wear and tear, have a longer expected lifespan, and maintain their functionality and aesthetics. Taking steps to preserve and maintain your barriers, accurately assessing their condition, and setting a competitive price based on market trends will increase your chances of earning a higher price for your used VDOT barriers.

2. Consider the location of your used VDOT barriers.

The transportation of VDOT barriers involves substantial expenses, primarily due to their size, weight, and specialized handling requirements. Shipping or trucking such heavy items can be costly, especially over long distances. If your barriers are located near a central construction hub or major urban area, potential buyers in the vicinity may be more inclined to purchase them due to lower freight costs. Conversely, barriers situated in remote or less accessible areas might require higher transportation expenses, reducing the willingness of buyers to pay a premium price. Given these factors, it’s a good idea to assess the local demand and potential transportation hurdles when determining a competitive price for your VDOT barriers.

3. Consider including the VDOT barriers’ specs in the listing.

VDOT barriers come in a range of sizes and materials. As you’re drafting your VDOT barrier listing, help potential buyers narrow their search and filter out unnecessary inquiries by listing your barriers’ exact specifications, including dimensions, year purchased, prior uses, and more. You can help buyers narrow their search even further by listing the barriers’ location, as many buyers don’t want to pay high freight fees and are looking to purchase VDOT barrier locally.

4. Consider taking high quality photos of your VDOT barrier listing.

To make your used VDOT barrier walls more marketable, take high quality photos that showcase the barriers from different angles. You can take photos in good daylight to help provide a clear and accurate view of the barriers' condition, as well as any visual signs of wear or damage. Buyers like to know exactly what they're purchasing, and they may pass over a barrier wall listing if pictures aren’t of good quality. It's a good idea to take photos from all sides, including the front and back. It's also important that the barriers are clean and free of any debris that could obscure the picture. If you want to go the extra mile, take a clear video showcasing the precast barrier wall in addition to the photographs!

5. Consider the competitive market price of your VDOT barriers.

By accurately representing the condition of your barriers, you can ensure that you receive a fair price for your materials and that buyers are satisfied with their purchase. When listing your VDOT barriers on Eiffel Trading, be sure to include detailed information about their condition, age, and any damage they may have sustained. This will help potential buyers make an informed decision and will increase the likelihood of a successful sale.
